Crepe's a go go - New Location!

The old Yorkville joint is opening up in a new spot at Spadina & Bloor W (next to Greg's Ice Cream).
The posters are up in the space and it looks like it will be up and running soon.
I wonder if they are expanding/being forced out of the Yorkville location.

Greg's Ice Cream
750 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5S2J2, CA

  1. I suspect they had to move out of Yorkville because the place was a huge success but far too small to accomodate all the fans.

      The new space is about as big, maybe even smaller than the yorkville location, so that can't be the reason.
      Maybe the rent got hiked up and veronique had to move?

    2. Interesting...

      Lamaranthe, do you know if it is indeed a move vs. a new location or are you speculating on that part too.

      One thing I noticed is that the owner is usually pretty controlling or the entire process. She likes to be the one to hand the crepe to the customer even it seems (i.e. my crepe was ready but I was waiting for it because she was busy doing something else one time). I have only been there a half dozen times but I have always enjoyed my meals there. I do hope this is a second location and not a relocation because it is nice to have the Yorkville spot for a relatively decently priced option around there.

      What business is it replacing at Spadina/Bloor? I don't recall there being any larger space in that area vs. what they are in now.

        That would be the now former Bubble Tease, between Miles Nadal JCC and Greg's Ice Cream.

          I said : ''I suspect''. As I did not check out the new location and I don't even know if the one in Yorkville is going to stay open, yes, this is pure speculation on my part.

            OK, I misread your post as you speculating the reason for the move, but, confirming that they were actually moving.

            Regardless, as I "suspected" it is a new additional location, and the "speculation" being referred to in this article is probably from here. Anyway, this is good news, glad they are keeping their existing location:
